Portrait Gallery of Distinguished American Citizens,
Portrait Gallery of Distinguished American Citizens, with Biographical Sketches, and Fac-similes of Original Letters. By William H. Brown.
Hartford [Connecticut, USA]: Published by E. B. and E. C. Kellogg. MDCCCXLVI [1846].
Folio, 27 sepia-tinted lithographic portraits in silhouette, plus facing facsimile of an autograph letter by the sitter (complete); including frontispiece of George Washington with facsimile of his letter to Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, May 15, 1784. 111 pp., original dark brown cloth boards backed with black morocco; the upper cover stamped in gilt with title and an image of a seated man examining a book. Binding a little scuffed and rubbed; some foxing to text leaves and spotting and browning to plate margins, as usual. Creasing through upper left corner of frontispiece; generally a good copy.
The subjects are Washington, John Marshall, John Quincy Adams, Richard Channing Moore, Andrew Jackson, John Forsyth, William Henry Harrison, John Caldwell Calhoun, De Witt Clinton, Richard Mentor Johnson, Joel Roberts Poinsett, Alexander Macomb, Martin Van Buren, Samuel Lewis Southard, Henry Clay, Henry Alexander Wise, Thomas Hart Benton, John Tyler, Levi Woodbury, Thomas Cooper, Daniel Webster, William White, Silas Wright, Nathaniel Potter Tallmadge, Felix Grundy, Dixon Hall, Lewis, and John Randolph. William Henry Brown (1808 - 1883), born in Charleston, South Carolina, was widely celebrated for his scissor-cut silhouettes. He wandered all over the United States, tracking down statesmen and distinguished citizens and taking their profiles. All the portraits, except for the George Washington allegorical frontispiece, are based on sketches made from life by Brown. This book was originally issued in 1845, but Harry Peters states that: "Almost the entire edition was destroyed by fire, and copies are extremely rare."
See Library of Congress 06010172 for an 1845 edition.

The Right Hon.ble Edmund Burke.
The Right Hon.ble Edmund Burke. Engraved for the Senator.
Drawn from Life by W.H. Brown, and Engrav'd by C. Warren.
Publish'd according to Act of Parliament, Dec.r 24.th 1790.
Engraving, with very large margins. Plate 140 x 89mm. 5½ x 3½".
Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797), statesman, 'The British Cicero', was an Anglo-Irish, author, orator, political theorist and philosopher who served for many years in the House of Commons as a member of the Whig party. In the words of Winston Churchill he was 'perhaps the greatest man that Ireland has produced'. He is remembered for his support of the cause of the American Revolutionaries and for his later opposition to the French Revolution. He was thus seen as a leading figure within the conservative faction of the Whig party, which he dubbed the "Old Whigs", in opposition to the pro-French-Revolution "New Whigs", led by Charles James Fox. Within philosophy he is remembered for his influential ideas about the Sublime which played a key role in the development of Romanticism at the end of the eighteenth century.

John Howard (1726?-1790), was a prison reformer and social campaigner, here holding a 'plan for a Lazaretto', a quarantine station for maritime travellers. Howard experienced imprisonment himself in France in 1756. It was not until 1773 when he became High Sheriff of Bedfordshire that he initiated an important campaign to transform prison conditions. He spent a lot of his time visiting prisons in Britain and Europe, leading him to write his influential book "The State of Prisons", first published in 1777. A highly reserved man, Howard shunned public recognition throughout his life.
